Deerwood Bank was established in 1910 in Deerwood, Minnesota. Located in Northern Minnesota, Deerwood had a plentiful supply of building materials and fuel from surrounding forests along with abundant game and lakes, attracting many to settle permanently or visit the developing resort industry.
After 68 years of serving Deerwood and its surrounding communities, the Bank added a second location to serve a broader area. In 1978 a new office was constructed approximately fifteen miles south in Garrison, Minnesota. In 1995, Deerwood Bank expanded its reach entering into the City of Brainerd located twenty miles to the west.
Concurrently, the Bank began to aggressively pursue expansion and acquisition opportunities that would fit into our business model. This model is to focus our efforts on building relationships with our local constituents specializing in meeting the needs of small businesses and home loan financing through investment in personnel and by the offering of unique products to our markets including free business checking and in-house servicing of mortgage loans.
